Had, I believe already lead through it to close to a harder continuation groove.

Great little route marred only by a bunch of lads on a route to the right (as you look at the route) all giving it the "that was a solid move" and "my grade IV was way harder than Badgers III" bullshit!

Found good belay from clearing snow. Norbu came up and we climbed up the snowy walk at the end. Very very steep with lots of fresh snow on. Had to cut through cornes at the top.

jimorothy 1 Feb, 2010 AltLd Initial fat ice pitch was quite tricky and very good, inadvertently led the crux as V-corner far too easy. Still, enjoyed route after finally found. It is clear that a lot of people are very confused about where this route is. I think the guidebook's 70m and the 60m here are confusing. It's about 30-40m left of gully 2.

Zoomer 7 Feb, 2009 AltLd Clearly, by reading the other user comments, we have gone wrong somwhere. The last corner pitch, although well used had very little ice, wasn't banked up and had bugger all gear after the first 2m. This felt like hard IV/V (not that i've done many!) but was way way harder than any other III i've done. Start 20m left of No. 2 Gully.1st pitch, ice ledges to a ledge under an ice column, 15m. 2 pitch, go up easy snow groove to large stance below a wall, 50m. 3rd pitch, traverse right under wall then up easy groove to below steep corner (crux) with sloping ledge on LH halfway up, stance above, 30m. 4th pitch, easy snow slope to finish. Does this sound like anything anyone else has done?

Will Smith 11 Dec, 2007 AltLd O/S Led pitches 1 and 3. Pitch 1 was all on ice giving some nice moves. Pitch 2 had a couple of harder mixed moves up a lean corner. 3rd and 4th pitches were really just snow plodding with variable quality of snow. Overall a great route and nice to get something done in the lakes in early december.
